NAME

       snmptrap, snmpinform - sends an SNMP notification to a manager

SYNOPSIS

       snmptrap  -v  1  [COMMON  OPTIONS]  AGENT  enterprise-oid agent generic-trap specific-trap
       uptime [OID TYPE VALUE]...

       snmptrap -v [2c|3] [COMMON OPTIONS] [-Ci] AGENT uptime trap-oid [OID TYPE VALUE]...

       snmpinform -v [2c|3] [COMMON OPTIONS] AGENT uptime trap-oid [OID TYPE VALUE]...

DESCRIPTION

       snmptrap is an SNMP application that uses the SNMP TRAP operation to send information to a
       network  manager.   One or more object identifiers (OIDs) can be given as arguments on the
       command line.  A type and a value must accompany each object  identifier.   Each  variable
       name is given in the format specified in variables(5).

       When invoked as snmpinform, or when -Ci is added to the command line flags of snmptrap, it
       sends an INFORM-PDU, expecting a  response  from  the  trap  receiver,  retransmitting  if
       required.  Otherwise it sends an TRAP-PDU or TRAP2-PDU.

       If  any  of  the  required  version  1  parameters,  enterprise-oid, agent, and uptime are
       specified as empty, it defaults to 1.3.6.1.4.1.3.1.1 (enterprises.cmu.1.1), hostname,  and
       host-uptime respectively.

       The TYPE is a single character, one of:
              i  INTEGER
              u  UNSIGNED
              c  COUNTER32
              s  STRING
              x  HEX STRING
              d  DECIMAL STRING
              n  NULLOBJ
              o  OBJID
              t  TIMETICKS
              a  IPADDRESS
              b  BITS
       which are handled in the same way as the snmpset command.

       For example:

       snmptrap    -v    1    -c    public   manager   enterprises.spider   test-hub   3   0   ''
       interfaces.iftable.ifentry.ifindex.1 i 1

       will send a generic linkUp trap to manager, for interface 1.

OPTIONS

       snmptrap takes the common options described in the snmpcmd(1) manual page in  addition  to
       the  -Ci  option described above.  Note that snmptrap REQUIRES  an argument specifying the
       agent to query as described there.
